bailout. i do not think anyone can vote against obama because he had not save that the auto industry would have been lost. i cannot see how any woman in her right mind would vote for a man who would not support the lily ledbetter act, equal pay for equal work. that is another no-brainer for me. i just hope every democrat in colorado would get out and vote. we have three votes in this house hold for obama. in a few days i will be mailing my ballot in. that's my comment. guest: we literally the same town. it's lewisville, colorado. it's the greatest small town in america. a great place to raise your family. there is a pitch my friends in city council will be happy for. a lot of others have already made up their minds. both sides can look at the recovery act and make strong cases for wire why not it did not work. we do not have enough time today to dispute that, but the point that we make in the editorials are that it provided significant spending to the state of colorado. it funded teacher jobs and other government programs to lessen the impact of the great recession here in the state and st

president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virge whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a fliving economy where businesses are prossspering and people are getting pay checks not youring about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's ran day view with dest any. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative.

obama is directly addressing them, directly saying, if you want your rights as a woman to plan your own life, your rights as a woman, to table to assert yourself, you better vote for me, because mitt romney will rein in those rights. that issue resonates very strongly around iowa. women voters can make a difference in this election. if you look at polling, the polling among male voters is pretty even. among women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out game -- who can get their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of our conversation right now with my glover, a senior writer for the associated press. let's hear from david on our independent line in texas. caller: hello. i believe obama has no problem. this is the media

towards the leadership right now. there have not been any serious critiques of the obama handling of the storm in the aftermath. what is mitt romney to do? he is in this middle place, where there is no role for an opposition candidate. no accepted script for what one of these candidates is supposed to do when one of these storms come along. there is a risk for both sides and a benefit that advantages obama more than mitt romney. >> governor romney will be in florida for these three rallies. also, vice-president joe biden. there it is. we will show you governor romney in florida with jeb bush. and joe biden, look for coverage today of around 3:00 p.m. eastern time on c-span, a campaign rally in that state. also, fast forwarding to this friday, when the jobs report comes out, could that be a game changer? >> i do not think so. we have noticed that over the last several months, good news or bad news, these jobs reports are not really moving numbers. largely because the average american does not really pay attention to them. they know, vaguely, that personal unemployment is high and t

they are right, but we don't see it that way. if we have that leaning obama. we shall see on monday whether any of them slip. we are monitoring them on an hourly basis. we are looking to the jobs report on friday. it may be the last piece of new information that could affect the election. host: any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had building up for romney. yohat. politics is not just about the national vot

with the unemployment stuck at 8%? i think the viewers would like to hear why it is you are supporting president obama. >> i do not believe either party has all the right answers. i will not say i only support one party. there are concepts and policies that i support with president obama. i voted for middle-class tax cuts, they're no longer held hostage. you were willing to join the majority and hold them hostage. i want a farm bill passed. i want to stand with our seniors and make sure we do not balance the budget on their backs. i believe mitt romney has ideas as well. i am not so my-way-or-the- highway that i cannot look at people objectively and go with what i think is best. what is best for this district? that is how i have operated for the last 16 months. >> you are voting for president obama? >> i have said that before. >> ok. there is another question on the floor. >> i joined mitt romney, president obama, and many others in full disclosure because i believed personal tax returns, putting them online -- you have made my personal finances part of this campaign. i am open and transparent. you di
